More scripting thoughts - [9:34 AM]

I woke up thinking about this, it's weird how my brain does that.

Anywho, here's what I want to do in MarsEdit when I publish a new post to my weblog, maybe some AppleScript junkie can help me out.

1) Fire a script.
2) That script should receive the post Title and URL.
3) I'd like to make a shortened title via TinyURL.
4) Send the title along with the TinyURL to Twitter.

So, has anyone done that? As far as I can tell there's no eventing support in AppleScript, I'm a newbie so I may have missed it. Maybe if I get some time tonight I'll look into doing the script minus the eventing. I think all the other things can be accomplished.
